2020 Harris Edwardes Interclub Competition

The 2020 Harris Edwardes Interclub Competition is now complete. This year's competition was a great success, with 12 teams (57 players in total) participating -- 3 teams from Southern Suburbs Chess Club, 3 from Perth Chess Club, 3 from UWA Chess Association, 1 from Metropolitan Chess Club and 2 from Chess Emperor.

Division A was won by Southern Suburbs Chess Club for an sixth successive year. The SSCC Division B team was also successful for a sixth successive year, withstanding strong challenges from both Perth and Metro. The team had conceded a lead at the half-way point but were able to fight back to emerge with a narrow victory. The Southern Suburbs Division C team scored 12/12 from the preliminary rounds, and advanced to the final where they were able to defeat UWA to win their division. Congratulations to the winning teams and well done to all club organisers who coordinated teams for this year's competition.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Harris Interclub Competition. A summary of the standings and results is provided below.

Division A (Open)

Division A was contested by 3 teams: one from Southern Suburbs Chess Club, one from UWA Chess Association, and one from Perth Chess Club. A Scheveningen-based format was used, whereby, for each team, team members played a total of 16 games, with 8 games played against players from each of the other two teams. For instance, a player who was assigned to Board 1 for Southern Suburbs A would play opponents assigned to Boards 1 and 2 from each of Perth A and UWA A. As there were no team matches in this format, the sum of players' individual game points is used to determine the winning team.


Congratulations to the winning team, Southern Suburbs A!

Division C (All players rated below 1500 ACF)

Division C was contested by 6 teams: one from Southern Suburbs Chess Club, one from Perth Chess Club, two from UWA and two from Chess Emperor. Teams were allocated into two separate groups of 3 teams each. Three preliminary rounds were played in each group, using a Scheveningen-based format, whereby for each team, the team members played a total of 12 games, with 6 games played against players from each of the other two teams. For instance, a player who was assigned to Board 1 for Southern Suburbs C would play opponents assigned to Boards 1 and 2 from each of UWA C2 and Chess Emperor C1. As there were no team matches, the sum of players' individual game points were used to determine the winning team in each group. The two winning teams then contest a playoff match for 1st and 2nd in the final standings, while the two second-placed teams play off for 3rd and 4th, and the two third-placed teams play off for 5th and 6th.


Congratulations to the winning team, Southern Suburbs C!
